Much of what is known about G6PD activity in Nigerians is
obtainable from studies done in the 70s from the South-western part
of the country. Very little academic information is available from
the North-central region of Nigeria. Are there marked differences
in the proportion of Nigerians with low activity of this enzyme
from different geographic locations, and does it always translate
to bad news when one is diagnosed of having G6PD deficiency? This
book therefore provides new information about the activity and
deficiency of G6PD in Nigerians resident in the North-central city
of Jos, Plateau State of Nigeria, the problems associated with G6PD
deficiency and how they present, benefits provided by the enzyme
deficiency, what individuals who are G6PD deficient need to avoid
and interactions of G6PD deficiency with other clinical conditions
also very prevalent in our locality. The presentations and
discussion should be useful to people pursuing a haematology course
at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, other medical
professionals in tropical and subtropical regions, or anyone else
interested in issues concerning G6P
